What's Happening

The Worli Koliwada Tour, conducted by DraftCraft, will take you till the end of the stretch where you will see fishermen repairing their boats, sewing their nets or about to make a trip into the sea for a fresh catch. This part of Koliwada also houses the Worli Fort, built by the British and now a heritage monument. Here, you will also get to see one of the most beautiful sights in Mumbai - a small, colourful fishermen village juxtaposed against the grand Bandra-Worli Sea Link on one side and the high-rises of Maximum City on the other - Worli being a prime commercial and residential location in Mumbai. 

And, if all this was not enough, this tour will also take you to sites where some of the most popular Bollywood movies have been shot in the recent past such as ABCD (Any Body Can Dance), Banjo, Vaastav, Aashiqui 2 and others. 

How's The Venue

Worli Koliwada is one of the earliest fishing villages in Mumbai. The land is also one of the original seven islands of Mumbai where the native fishermen community or Kolis came to be more than 800 years ago.

The Worli Koliwada is a maze of narrow lanes dotted with old but picturesquely tucked small houses, many flaunting Portuguese architecture and abundant fish markets. The bylanes take you through a culture walk showcasing the lives and lifestyles of the native Kolis and more recent settlers. 

Price Includes

Each ticket will cost you INR 3,500 per person, which covers the walking tour, the expert talk, breakfast and beverages and a souvenir. 

Make A Note

The duration of the walk is 2.5 hours, and the meeting point is at Camp Restaurant in Prabhadevi. 

Don't forget to carry your ID cards with you, where a copy of the photo ID has to be submitted at the start of the event.

Don't miss the Worli Koliwada Tour if you want to see a different side of Mumbai.
